I didn't see anything else on here about this missions, so I figured I'd post. This is the second Hunting Society mission, and it was driving me crazy! I could never catch up to the bobcat. What I ended up doing was setting a tripmine in the middle of the gorge he runs through... damaged pelt, but worth it for the laugh ;-) Anyway, does anyone know a trick for actually completing this one?
"Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away."
The small gully with the trees that you chase him through at the very start is the same one you jump over at the very end. I got sick of trying to chase him, and didn't want to damage his coat with gunfire, so I just crawled up the side of the gully and waited with my bow ready for him to run his course and shot him with an arrow after he made the jump.
